June 3, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

June 3, 2016

It’s quite warm and sunny across much of the area right now, and as usual, showers and thunderstorms are a possibility as we go later into the afternoon. However, our recent summer weather trend appears to be coming to an end soon! I’ll explain it all in today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast, welcome to it!

We’re in the mid 80’s in a lot of places today, except for the normal mountainous cool spots. As of about 3:30pm, there are already a few storms around, toward Russell, Wise, Dickenson, Buchanan, and Tazewell Counties in Southwest Virginia. Those are moving to the east-southeast, and have a good shot at brushing Abingdon on their way through.

More storms are likely to form this afternoon, as is always the case in this type of weather pattern. As mentioned before, changes are coming, and I’ll get to the details in a moment. Here’s the short version of the forecast:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, some evening showers and storms, with patchy fog possible in the morning. Low 64.

Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy, showers and storms developing in the afternoon. High 85.

Saturday night-Mostly cloudy, rain and storms likely. Low 68.

Sunday-Mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 78.

Monday-A small chance of rain early, otherwise mostly sunny and less humid. Highs near 80.

Tuesday-Mostly sunny, with a pop-up thunderstorm possible late in the day. High 82.

A cold front is located to our west, as close as West Tennessee this afternoon. That front won’t actually make it here, but it will destabilize things enough to give us scattered showers and storms through this afternoon and the evening as well.

A stronger front is in middle part of the country, stretching from Minnesota through Missouri and Kansas, and down to Texas. That front will approach on Saturday, increasing our chances of thunderstorms as the day goes on. Our highest chances of rain are Saturday night and then Sunday as the front will go through our area late Sunday.

After that, we should get a break from afternoon storms for a day, maybe two. Monday might feature a lingering rain shower early, but it should be mainly dry. The front will bring less humid air in, and we’ll feel that early next week. There is a small chance of an afternoon thunderstorm Tuesday, but mainly in the mountains.

As for the weekend, tomorrow morning is your best bet for doing much outdoors. We may see sunshine into the afternoon as well, but the later we get into the day, the more storms we will see on their way in. Saturday is clearly the best day to do anything outside, as Sunday may be the first thing we’ve had to a washout for quite a while!

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! I’ll have one more update on Sunday evening before I’m off for a little vacation. My last vacation was in November when I was having surgery, so this is the first time in close to a year without much medical to worry about! I’ll be looking forward to spending time goofing off around the area in the week ahead.

But, I will produce a “week ahead” forecast Sunday evening, sometime after 7pm, before I sign off for a week away from the weather office. I’ll talk to you then…have a great weekend!
